Tapped as an iTunes "Single of the Week" earlier this year, "The Show" has reached Top 25 at Hot AC radio. "The Show" was one of Clear Channel's top 5 Hot AC tracks of 2008. In addition, Lenka was featured as Clear Channel's "NEW! Artist to Watch" in September.

The accompanying video, which has surpassed 500,000 plays on YouTube, has been added at VH1 (in its top rotation, Gung Ho), MTV Hits and Nickelodeon's The N. "The Show" received massive exposure in Old Navy's back-to-school advertising campaign and the fall promotional campaign for ABC's "Ugly Betty."

Digital singles and album sales have soared after Lenka's TV performances ("Late Night with Conan O'Brien, "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson") and use of her songs in shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "90210."
